I tore down the intake and tb finding kompressed oil splattered all the way into the runners. Is this small amount of oil damaging anything? What is the value of the oil catch can?

From Needswings web site.

Why would we need such a part?

The 2 smaller (one on each bank) valve cover ports feeding into the bottom of the throttle body are pulling oil into the intake stream thru the venturi port on the bottom of the throttle body. This is coating everything after the throttle body with oil. For those of you that have looked at the inside of your intercooler, air distribution ypipe or intake manifolds will know what we are referring to. This oil coating is causing inefficiency to the cooling and flow thru the intercooler and hinders flow thru the ypipe and manifolds. The spark plugs will eventually foul as well due to this oil. The IAT and MAP sensor get coated with the oil, and the oil also makes its way into the combustion chamber. In short, its crud and we don't want it.
